first let me start by saying that i LOVE silverstripe. i am using it to develop an internal intranet for my company. i have successfully made a right to left theme and have hebrew displaying perfectly except for one thing.
when i upload files with hebrew names (an absolute necessity) the upload completes successfully, but it strips all he hebrew characters out of the file name. this is a problem because there are many workers here that don't read english. i must be able upload files with hebrew names, and have them display correctly. if anyone has any advice, i would most appreciate it.
i have already set the collation in the "FILES" table in the db to utf8_unicode_ci (as per several other webapps that had similar problems) but that did not help.
UPDATE: after i upload the file, and all the hebrew characters are stripped out, i can edit the title and filename and then the hebrew will show up. this leads me to believe that there is some form of character validator that is stripping out characters. can anyone tell where i might find this?
